Inaugural Lecture: Where have all the nomads gone?

Start: Feb 7, 2012 6:30:00 PM

Inaugural Lecture Sara
It is assumed that the nomadic lifestyle long practised by many African pastoralists is disappearing following pressures to sedentarise in order to access services, livestock loss because of environmental crises and expansion of agricultural populations into former pasture lands. Few data are available on the actual evolution and dynamics of nomadic populations. Sara Randall examines various dimensions of the demographic invisibility of African nomadic populations, and highlights flaws in previous understandings of nomadic population dynamics, to show that understanding nomadic demography requires far more than demographic data.
